|PARIS Women's Rashard Higgins Jersey , July 31 (Xinhua) -- The BRICS countries will continue to play a key role in the global economy although they reported slower growth in recent years, said an expert with the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
Federico Bonaglia, deputy director of OECD Development Center, said in a recent interview with Xinhua that the slowdown in the growth of the BRICS economies will not have a significant impact on their joint share in the world economy.
"China and India continue to maintain a very sustained growth, a situation that both Russia and Brazil are expected to reach next year," Bonaglia said.
Latest OECD economic outlook expected a return to growth in Brazil and Russia. Meanwhile Women's Trevon Coley Jersey , China and India are projected to expand their GDP by more than 6 percent.
He noted that India is the only BRICS country that has not experienced a significant slowdown in the past few years, with a growth rate of around 8 percent in 2015 and 7.7 percent projected for 2018.
Brazil and Russia are poised for economic recovery, according to Bonaglia.
The Brazilian economy contracted 4 percent in 2015 and 3.6 percent in 2016. "The good news is that (it) is expected to return to a positive growth in 2017 and it will reach a growth rate between 1.5-1.6 percent in 2018," he estimated.
Russia, which has experienced "a very complicated situation," will also be able to shake off recession in 2017 and reach a growth rate around 1.4 percent Women's Randall Telfer Jersey , he said.
However, the outlook for South Africa remains clouded, said the expert, who puts the country's growth rate for 2017-2018 period at 1 percent.
Bonaglia told Xinhua that BRICS economies play a very important role by injecting dynamism into the world economy.
"In 2000, the BRICS represented 40 percent of the GDP. In 2010, they represented more than 50 percent and in 2015 Women's Seth DeValve Jersey , they have reached 54.7 percent of world GDP," he recalled.
However, despite this strong progress, the BRICS are facing challenges in terms of productivity growth and innovation, the OECD expert noted.

DUBLIN, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Ireland will hold a referendum on its abortion laws by the end of May Women's JC Tretter Jersey , Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar announced here Monday night.
The announcement came at a press conference after a cabinet meeting had formally approved a referendum on the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution of Ireland, which virtually forbids abortions in the country.
Varadkar said the referendum will ask citizens whether they want to retain the amendment or enable the Dail, the lower house of the Irish parliament, to make a new law that will allow abortion in hospitals up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.
The Eighth Amendment recognizes the equal right to the life of the mother and the fetus. It was signed into law one month after a referendum in September 1983 with nearly 67 percent voting against abortions.
If the referendum is in favor of pro-abortion laws, Varadkar said Health Minister Simon Harris has been asked to draft a bill that will be introduced in the Oireachtas, the Irish legislature.
The legislation will be drafted in line with recommendations made last month by the all-party Oireachtas committee Women's Kevin Zeitler Jersey , which proposed the repeal of the Eighth Amendment and permission for termination of pregnancy up to 12 weeks.
"We have abortion in Ireland, but it is unsafe, unregulated and unlawful, and in my opinion we cannot export our problems and import our solutions," Varadkar said.
Abortion in Ireland is illegal unless performed to save the life of the mother. Many Irish women travel to other countries for abortion or source abortion pills from abroad online.
According to Harris, at least 170 Women's Danny Shelton Jersey ,000 Irish women traveled to other countries, mostly to Britain, for abortion since 1980.
In recent times, however, an increasing number of people have been supporting a more liberalized abortion law.
